As eight children sat around a table at East Side House waiting for snacks they played a game of call-and-response.
“Vegetables,” shouted Aaren Kokubun, the group leader.
“Go!” screamed the children.
“Cake,” Kokubun shouted. “Whoa!” came the answer.
The children are participating in a program designed to convince families who live in a community where fast food eateries outnumber playgrounds that they should eat their vegetables and should exercise every day.
